Tomorrow on Newshub Nation: Muddled messaging and misinformation? Associate Minister of Health Peeni Henare on lockdowns, rule-breakers and of course the very latest numbers. We talk to journalist David Farrier and public narrative researcher Jess Berentson-Shaw on conspiracy theories and the government’s fluctuating tone. Criminal defense lawyer Marie Dyhrberg says Green MP Jan Logie’s Sexual Violence Bill has serious flaws - they debate the bill. The government's new medicinal cannabis regime was supposed to make it easier for patients and doctors but it could be poised to make things a whole lot harder. Anna Bracewell-Worrall reports. And to discuss the political news of the week we are joined by our panel: political commentator Ben Thomas and Auckland University Politics lecturer Dr Lara Greaves.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
